A Man Named Scott
This Amazon Prime documentary film explores the rise of hip-hop artist Kid Cudi and breaks down the struggles he endured after he experienced success in his career. Born Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi, Cudi rose to fame after releasing his 2008 single “Day N Nite” from his 2008 mixtape A Kid Named Cudi. The single was later re-released on his first studio album Man on the Moon: The End of Day and peaked at number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts; the album landed at number 4 on the Billboard 200. A Man Named Scott comes out Nov. 5.
The Unforgivable is a Netflix drama film starring Sandra Bullock as a woman who served 20 years in prison after killing a cop. After her release, she attempts to locate her little sister, whom she was raising at the time of the murder. However, the people around her don’t want to make it easy for her to re-enter society. The film co-stars Viola Davis, Vincent D’Onofrio, Jonathan Bernthal, and more. It will open in select theaters on Nov. 24 and on Netflix on Dec. 10.

If you are in a crime-fighting mood, then Cowboy Bebop may be the show for you. The live adaptation of the eponymous animated series is about three individuals who come together to form a bounty hunting crew in space.

Cowboy Bebop stars John Cho as Spike Spiegel, Luke Cage star Mustafa Shakir as Jet Black, and Daniella Paneda as Faye Valentine. Cowboy Bebop starts streaming on Netflix on Nov. 19.
Tiger King 2
Joe Exotic may be behind bars, but the sequel will not continue without him: He will join the cast through phone calls from prison, where he will talk about his old associates as well as his enemy Carole Baskin. The series also documents Baskin’s moves to secure his zoo, The Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park. New secrets will be uncovered and, once again, the show will revisit the mystery behind the missing case of Baskin’s husband Don Lewis.
Tiger King 2 will hit Netflix with five episodes on Nov. 17.
